684  Room-filling sound without a room-filling speaker cabinet. Slimmer than ever, the 684 offers an amazing combination of serious floorstander power, spectacular audio performance and unbeatable value thanks to its new and vastly improved bass/midrange drivers and the Decoupled Double Dome tweeter. Switching to 5-inch drivers from the previous 6.5-inch designs means the new 684 is significantly slimmer than its predecessor, yet Bowers & Wilkins engineers have still improved its audio performance. The two Kevlar-cone drivers now feature smaller voice coils to increase sensitivity. The 5-inch...

685  At home on either a stand or bookshelf, the versatile new 685 delivers outstanding performance. Perfectly sized for most rooms, it combines new Decoupled Double Dome tweeters, Kevlar cones and Anti-Resonance Plugs, with the value for which the 600 Series is renowned. The Decoupled Double Dome tweeter found in the 685 – and the rest of the new 600 Series – is a technology taken straight from our awardwinning CM10 speaker. The dual-layer design combines a thin aluminium dome for lightness and a thicker aluminium ring for rigidity. The result is absolutely stunning clarity and tonal purity....

686  Small is beautiful – at just 160mm wide, the 686 may be the most compact speaker in the new 600 Series, but don’t underestimate its power and precision. That’s thanks to its new Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, improved Kevlar driver and front-facing Flowport . ™ An ideal bookshelf or wall-mounted speaker, the 686 is designed to fit into any space and still sound perfect. Its main 5-inch driver features a 25mm voice coil which makes for a higher sensitivity speaker with bass more suited for placement near a wall. A front-firing Flowport, dimpled like a golf ball around the aperture for smoothly...

Treble The new 600 Series borrows technology from the award-winning high-end CM10, in the form of the Decoupled Double Dome tweeter. As a result it captures musical subtleties with breathtaking accuracy and delivers a natural, spacious sound unprecedented for such an affordable speaker. When designing a tweeter, the goal is to make the diaphragm light yet stiff to reproduce high notes accurately with a pistonic back-and-forth motion and minimal distortion. The 600 Series does this beautifully, borrowing high-end tweeter technology from Bowers & Wilkins award-winning CM10 speaker. Its double dome...

Midrange  How to improve on the stunning performance of the 600 Series without affecting its legendary value? That was the challenge faced by Bowers & Wilkins engineering team on the new Series 600 midrange drivers. The results are fantastic. The same properties that allow Kevlar to stop a bullet also make it the ideal material for soaking up standing waves in a speaker cone that can colour and distort midrange sound. Not only does Kevlar deliver a far cleaner sound, it can do so to a more widely dispersed group of listeners. The new 600 Series midrange drivers feature our unique and iconic Kevlar...
